Monthly Meetings in New Jersey

The New Jersey chapter meets regularly in central New Jersey to plan programs, projects and events. Our meetings are free and open to the public. We invite you to join us for a couple of meetings to see if we are the right fit for you.

We usually meet the Third Sunday of the month, from 1:15-3:45PM in Somerset County. Occasionally, we meet on a different date.

On January 21, 2018, our agenda will include:

  • The passing of Doudly Elius
  • A representative from our Haiti chapter visiting the New Jersey Chapter, and connecting with local and statewide leaders.
  • The May 19th Celebration of Haitian Heritage Month on May 19, 2018 at the Asbury Park Senior Center from 11:00AM to 2:00PM.

For more information, join on our mailing list.
